Biography of the artist
Alex Cecchetti was born in Terni (Italy) in 1977; he lives and works between Paris and London. Alex Cecchetti is an artist, poet, gardener, and choreographer. His unclassifiable work could be considered the art of the unrepresentable: in his tactile and poetic, aesthetic and materialist style, he creates mental and physical environments in which viewers often form part of the work. He sees his exhibitions as celebrations of nature and his performances as incantations. Alex Cecchetti has shown his work in France and abroad, recently with a monumental installation and performance at Maxxi, Rome (2021), a solo exhibition at Casa da Cerca, Almada (2021), and a double solo exhibition with Laure Prouvost at Netwerk, Aalst (2020).
